    Try this: Remove the battery and the AC power cord from the Acer. Press and hold the Start button for at least 3 seconds. This will drain any remaining juice from all components. Replace the battery and the Ac cord (if you choose) and try it again. If that doesn't work, try "control f8" and come up in the hidden start screen. Navigate to the settings function and find where the choices are to set the function of your start (power) button. Make sure it is set to "turn off computer" and NOT "hibernate" or Restart Computer".

    Does your far make a noise at all?
    Feels like it's stuck and forcing a shutdown.

    If you search on this forum you will find the solution, a little whack on the case usually gets the fan going again.

    Variation on yachtpro's suggestion:

    1. Remove the battery
    2. Connect to AC power
    3. Boot
    4. Re-insert battery
